The wealth of talent

Editorial by Matt Bud from the October 15, 2019 Newsletter

I have to tell you that I come away from most meetings of The FENG considerably impressed with the wealth of talent in the room. Perhaps it is just me, but the experience that most of our members bring to the party is truly amazing. The only problem that our members actually face is marketing their experience to others. Hey, if we were marketing experts, I assume we all would have gone into marketing. Unfortunately, we are accounting/finance types, and that coupled with our innate modesty appears to prevent us from bragging appropriately. The other not so obvious “syndrome” is that we have a wealth of talent and experiences. Yes, I know I said that already and in a positive [ Read more… ]

Please note that this is NOT the Panera Bread in downtown Princeton. It is the Panera bread near Wegmans.

Agenda

The FENG Princeton breakfasts are designed for members to get to know each other in a relaxed and informal setting. There is no agenda – this will give you time in a different forum to interact, receive individualized attention, and help each other.

Although the meeting is informal, here’s how we structure it:
• For the first 15 minutes, get your coffee and talk freely amongst yourselves.
• At 8:45, I will make a few announcements. I’ll ask if anyone has something they want to share with the group. Then, everyone will have a chance to say their elevator pitch (no more than 30 seconds, please).
o One of our attendees made the suggestion that everyone who attends should be a job lead or something else to share with the group. I encourage this but will not make a requirement. Anyone who wants to contribute something to the group can do so here.
• Then we’ll split the group into sub-groups of no more than 8-10 people facilitated by a leader. Depending on the number of attendees, we may ask someone to run a group. The group splits will be done on a random basis which facilitates a good mix.
• Within each sub-group, everyone will have a chance to talk about his / her issues and how the group can help, job search problems / opportunities, etc. Come prepared – if you want us to critique your resume or networking document, bring enough copies to distribute. Know what you want to achieve in the time we give you. I expect everyone will have the floor for about 5-7 minutes depending on attendance. In order to facilitate the conversation, I often ask people:
> What is your competitive advantage?
> What do you do differently that marks you out from others?
> How do you provide value?
> What are you known for? What do you want to be known for in a couple of years’ time?

These are a bit like interview questions, but often I am trying to find the gold in your value proposition that might not be as clear to others as it is to you. (Questions taken from a newsletter article – Jan 21, 2014 – provided by Ken Witt, Raleigh FENG Chapter).
• Everyone can stay as long as they want, but the leader will make sure everyone has an equal chance to talk based on the 10:45 break.

Agenda:
Your Personal Brand…
Discover-Articulate-Market your “Special Sauce”
Program Overview

Today’s volatile business landscape is flooded with ‘voice-less’, undifferentiated, commoditized LinkedIn profiles, self-marketing collateral and self-serving elevator pitches. For many, this is an opportunity.

This post-recessionary marketplace demands that candidates ‘stand out’ authentically amid this clutter and noise. ‘Fake it ‘til you make it’ is not an option for most financial executives. For them, it’s superficial, misleading and lacks integrity.

Success and fulfillment belong to those who are open to the possibilities and adopt a proactive mindset. They uncover their Personal Brand - their unique promise of value. They ‘find their ‘voice’ - so they can be ‘heard’ above the crowd. They are able to motivate people of influence, i.e., referring parties and decision makers.

People with a well-developed Personal Brand elevate their pre-eminence with what is their ‘right fit’ audience, building credibility that will motivate their’ champions’ to advocate on their behalf.

About Charley Timmins:
Charley Timmins deals in one of life’s little mysteries – how to secure work that matters - so candidates achieve professional success, gain personal significance and have more fun.
His “Big Idea” – that only by finding our true voice and living our Authentic Self can we make the difference in the world. He knows that our hidden superpowers hold the key to our Authentic Self, which enables us to do well by doing good.


BE SURE TO BRING YOUR RESUME OR ONE PAGE MARKETING PIECE! As well as a name badge and name tent for the table.

Chapter Update, Member Introductions and Networking

As always, this is a great opportunity to network, practice your “elevator” speech and share ideas & tips with fellow FENG members.

Come prepared to learn and share your recent successes, describe your job search plans for the next month, and bring job search questions and concerns. Seek assistance from the group on topics where you need help.

It is important that you bring copies of your target list of companies and people you would like to meet. Also bring enough copies of your One Pager profile or Resume for other members. These are necessary tools you need so that people will know how to help you.

We meet the third Monday of each month from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM.

Our objective is to support each other, share leads and discuss general intelligence about the job market.

Dress is "job interview" attire, or "dressy" business casual.


The networking objectives for the meeting are:

To give each member of our group an opportunity to meet with peers, share job leads and create a sharp focus on his or her career search target in the minds of our members. This allows members and guests to provide you with job leads, networking contacts and strategic search advice.'
